a christmas carol. i mean, someone. why? are they that bitter against religion? is that what it is? did they have a bad experience with organized religion? is it bitterness? >> well, i don't want to psycho analyze atheist activists who do prioritize that, but what i will say is that i think that the separation of church and state is in place to insure that the government does not privilege one religion over any other. it does not endorse any one religion over any other. so, my feeling on christmas displays in public spaces, in public schools is that if those are there, there should be displays for many different religions and many nonreligious -- >> i don't think many people have a beef with that. i don't think -- not in my crew. >> no -- >> nobody has a beef with that. >> i would hope not, yeah. yeah, exactly. >> i mean, we don't like, we don't like -- >> i mean, look -- >> i have to amend this. there are two things that have come up, one in the capital of washington state, in olympia. there were some atheist groups who said if you have a christmas tree, i'm going to put up an obnoxiou
a religion in south africa. it's always been an entirely white religion up to that moment. nelson mandela, showing up for the final. we have video of nelson mandela on the field presenting the world cup to his captain, who himself was a child of apartheid. himself said he grew up thinking that black people were second class citizens. yet nelson mandela, when he walked into the pitch, changed south africa. listen to the welcome he got. >> all the teams -- >> 35,000 people in that stadium on that day, 99% of them white. started chanting, "nelson, nelson, nelson." and maintenance of those people are the same ones who believed he was rightfully imprisoned for so long. many called him a terrorist, and there they were chants his name. that more than anything was the moment that south africa changed. >> i know automatic the blogs are talking about what people used to say about mandela, the terms used for him. people's thoughts and attitudes have changed as they realize who that's guy is. >> certainly has. >> come over here with me. sharlene smythe is an authorized nelson mandela biographer and i
no country from morocco to pakistan in which christians can freely practice their religion, end of quote. he continued, quote, there is a severe danger as we start to celebrate the feast of christmas in this country that all christianity will be almost completely erased from the traditional middle east holy land of the bible. mary to uld not take egypt because jesus would not have been safe there today. to follow on sir baldry's line of thinking, the patriarch abraham would also have a difficult time surviving in iraq having come from er, which is now nasiriyah. jonah would be hard pressed to make it to naviniva, which is now in the most you will area, and paul could scarcely travel the road to demascus in syria. the debate in the house of commons began with a staggering statistic, namely that one christian is killed every 11 minutes somewhere on earth for their faith. one christian is killed every 11 minutes somewhere on earth for their faith. the focus of the commons debate was on the persecution of christians, several noted that whether or not you are a person of faith, all should be conc
on either race, ethnicity, religion, preference, any of the signs of bigotry have to be addressed and not. and i think it just takes time. we're learning. we are still evolving. we are a better country today than we were 20 years ago, 30 years ago. we still have a ways to go. >> when you cast that vote in 19 yivenlgs you can look back and say within four years nelson mandela is released. four years after that, democratic elections, he becomes the president. did you think history was going to play out like that in 1986? did you think the struggle was going to take longer than that? >> i had no idea. in fact, i had no way of knowing how nelson mandela once being freed would react. my wife and i had the opportunity to visit robben island and stand in his cell and look out into the courtyard where he spent so many years crushing rocks. i felt a sense of rage welling up inside of me having think nelson mandela having spent so many years in prison could come out and walk tall and straight and say that he wanted to seek rec sill dwrags. that's an extraordinary statement i had no way of knowing w
. somebody a strong bailiff in their religion. i have a strong belief in my religion. it doesn't mean i'm going an extreme and do something violent that's what we have to deal with. we have to deal with the elements in whatever walk of life that will turn to violence and challenge not only societies that can't take care of themselves, but also us in our way of life. i think that's a difficult challenge that we're facing. i think as we look around the world and see societies and the underpinnings whey describe in some there's a sense of hopelessness. that's where we have to understand that. we have to decide whether we're going do anything about it or not. some cases question some case we can't. what we would like to do is help other nations and other regions of the world, certainly to be able to help themselves. that's what a global leader should do. i think that's what we try do all the time. as i see the military, with the military has been involved in over the years. that's with we try to do. it doesn't make any difference what their intkd. other questions? let me go income the back.
out of hand. you would not dismiss religion out of hand. religion has nothing to do with science, but it is something people believe very deeply. you have scientists arguing that the foods are safe and acceptable. on the other hand, you have people arguing on other grounds that even if the foods are safe -- and they are not willing to accept that they are -- but even if the foods are safe, they are not acceptable on other grounds. these two points of view go past each other with no meeting of the minds whatsoever. the academy was giving a vote to science-based look into genetically modified foods to say they are ok. other people would argue differently. would think labeling solve a lot of these problems than they should have been labeled from the beginning. let me say one other thing about that. the first company that was going to develop a genetically modified food was working on a gmo tomato. i have in my files at nyu copies of the label they intended to use on those products. a great big tomato with genetic modifications was right on the front saying this is the pride of calif
have identified whiidentify which people. owe 'people. this was his religion. >> we, you are absolutely right. even though he went through chechen prison, whenever people from different denominations came in, they obviously wanted to see him, so he would go and sit and listen very attentively. that was yet another of mandela's personas. >> as a politician, let's end with this. one of the most remarkable things was when there was a changeover in power, ordinarily, you wipe out who was there. especially under conditions like apartheid. how did he sell the idea of keeping africanos in government, how did he make that okay with the african people? >> i think personally at a fundamental level, he recognized that africanos were south africans just like everyone of us. that's a lessen he learned in prison and emphasized in prison. he had a cordial relationship and we learned from him. the most important message who to trust, please dobi don't be consumed by hatred. it no cusses on the wrong things. that's a message he carried outside of prison. amazing, he was able to carry huge numbers of peo
of the parliamentarians, they religion against their to actually have a nuclear weapon. it's not like there hasn't been a debate within iran itself in regards to nuclear weapons program. it's not like all of iranians have said they want to move forward with nuclear weapons. they have been divided with their own society. they have that constant debate themselves. i think the iranian people made a choice when they decided to elect a more moderate president this time than they had previously. and so part of the voices of the tonian people are starting stare up also. they want to -- my hope is, and we will see whether or not they abide by the agreement and move forward, but my hope is that they would want to be a part of the international community. they cannot be part of the international community if in fact they have a nuclear weapon. as i said, it is important that russia and china has a stake in is also because here are individual countries who previously had not had a stake in this. important for them to have this p5+1 come together. if iran really wants to get back to the international committee, th
their religion is to destroy us. host: we will have you respond to that. negotiating in a religious way? guest: he is right to a great extent. we arenians have said the great evil and they're going to wipe israel off the face of the earth. in the middle eastern culture, it is looked upon with high regard to get the best deal possible no matter what it takes, that includes lying. that is one reason the gulf states like to work with the u.s., because we are honest and transparent. they like doing business with us as opposed to their partners or even the communist chinese. they like doing business with people that are honest and transparent. that is an underpinning to these negotiations. once again, if you are willing to blow yourself up and commit suicide in order to blow up other people, you are not a rational person. up other people, you are not a rational person. that is to you are dealing with when you are dealing with uranian's. host: -- iranians. host: you are saying that all middle eastern countries are this way? part of the middle eastern culture to get the best deal that you can, wheth
that jerusalem, the crucible of the world's three great monotheistic religions becomes non-not as the subject of constant struggle, but as the golden city of peace and unity embodied the aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. peace is possible because we have courageous leaders who have already taken significant political risks for peace. the time is approaching when they will have to take even more . they have shown real courage, nd primesident abbas a minister netanyahu. the president has made tough choices. he has stayed the course, despite people in his team saying you ought to get out of here, look at those settlements, they are making a full of you. leave me, that battle has been going on. i deal with it every week. time, there has been israeli soldiers shot and killed and other actsk of incitement. prime minister netanyahu has made tough choices. just this week, he reaffirmed his commitment to a palestinian state. he said israel is ready for an historic peace. because possible today the arab league has also made tough choices. for the first time, they came to washington. they

and safeguards the freedoms of speech, press, and religion. as the u.s. attempted to encourage ashe nations to develop a transparent society they need to look no further than their democratic neighbor. i want to pause right there and again yield to my friend as we continue this conversation and move forward on why this matters and bringing up these ideas of a relationship that's deeply rooted in history and of mutual sharing and not one going seemingly behind the back of the other. mr. schneider: you talk about the relationship. as you noted, harry s. trow truman was the first -- harry s. truman was the first to recognize the state of israel after the british left. immediately upon its declaration of independence, israel was attacked by five nations. throughout its history, israel has faced hostility from its neighbors throughout the region. since 1973 in the yom kippur war, as a 12-year-old boy, i remember vividly coming out of synagogue that day, sitting in the back seat of my parents' car, listening to the radio, not knowing if israel was going to survive. it was an intiss ten rble threa
